Our experience at First Friends Montessori has exceeded expectations. My son has attended this school for the past two years and is now more than ready to start his journey as a Kindergartner. The curriculum taught allows each student to grow at their own pace, while also providing the structure needed at this age. There are no words to describe the excellence of the teachers. They're compassionate and sincerely care about each child there! We are going to miss this school and couldn't recommend it highly enough! You won't be disappointed.
